As several users have been able to verify, Gina Carano’s official Twitter account has suffered an apparent “shadow banning” by the platform, so both her tweets and her account will have a limited reach.
The adds to a long list of measures of harassment of the actress, in the context of the cancellation campaign initiated against her by the left a few months ago, which reached its peak with the dismissal of the actress from the Disney+ series The Mandalorian.
In an Instagram post, Gina Carano compared the climate of Nazi Germany against Jews, with the harassment campaigns by the left against conservatives today, promoted by the so-called cancel culture.
In a move that many see as confirmation of Gina Carano’s expressed concerns, Disney fired her outright after this post, accusing her of anti-Semitism.
The left’s hunger to eradicate Gina Carano’s voice was not satiated with her firing, but has continued with all kinds of attacks against the actress, trying to eradicate her presence altogether.
Disney+ decided not to broadcast an episode already recorded by the actress for National Geographic of the program Running Wild with Bear Gryllis, and the toy company Hasbro communicated that it would no longer produce the action figures of Gina Carano’s character in The Mandalorian (which, by the way, has caused their price to skyrocket in the collector’s market).
Some voices have spoken out in defense of the actress, such as System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan -who has also been a victim of harassment by the left-, or comedian Bill Burr, who is also in the spotlight.
Other left-leaning celebrities have also shown their support for Gina Carano, expressing their concern about the erosion of the right to freedom of expression. In a recent show, Real Time host Bill Maher showed his astonishment when after asking his opinion about what is happening with the actress, Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp replied that Gina Carano “is a Nazi.”
It is a curious circumstance that the justification for firing Gina Carano was for having compared the climate of Nazi Germany against Jews with the current climate of persecution against conservatives.
However, Heitkamp’s description of Carano as a Nazi does not seem to have mattered to the left, which not only continues to harass the actress, but also now they also want to cancel the actor Henry Cavill for having been Gina Carano’s partner 10 years ago.
The origin of the harassment against Gina Carano
Gina Carano became a target of the left from the moment she began to express some conservative ideas on her social networks. Although it is difficult to determine when she became a favorite target of harassers, everything points to the fact that the campaign against the actress intensified in September last year, when Gina refused to join a transsexualist initiative.
This initiative, promoted by the left, consisted of social network users specifying in their profiles whether they preferred to be addressed by “non-binary pronouns.” According to gender ideology, “he/she” pronouns can be limiting and offensive to people who identify as intergender, gender fluid or many other genders beyond male and female.
Many celebrities and celebrities were compelled to change their profiles to show their support for gender ideology and their political agenda. Some public figures – such as her co-star in The Mandalorian, Pedro Pascal – joined this political campaign, but Gina Carano abstained.
At the insistence that she change her profile and after Pedro Pascal explained to her why many people were including those pronouns in their social networks, Gina Carano decided to put the words “beep/bop/boop” -sounds made by droids in the Star Wars universe-, and this unleashed the fury of the left against her.
This joke has had serious consequences for Gina Carano, who in a matter of a few months has been fired from The Mandalorian and her action figure discontinued, she has also been left out of the spin-off Rangers of the New Republic, has had to endure all kinds of insults, that even tried to cancel her ex-partner, and now apparently she is also the victim of a shadow banning by Twitter. All for not supporting leftist ideology.
